  1. Anything and everything Cheryl! Any crafting items we can all spare, I'm sure they will put to good use. Sending a pm with mailing info. Thanks
  2. I am constantly on the lookout for craft freebies on freecycle and craigslist, but out here on Long Island there seems to be a shortage of them, however I'll keep on looking! Thanks for the info
  3. Hi Everyone! I am hoping to collect ANY and ALL left over crafting materials you may want to purge out of your stashes/collections. Everything from granny squares, yo-yos, yarn, fabric, glue sticks, pom poms, hooks, needles, pins, thread, - you name it and it will find a wonderful home. Recently my grandmother invited me to a wonderful group at a local church. This group consists of a dozen women, most of whom are older than me (I'm 40), with my grandmother being the eldest at 85. These women gather each and every Thursday from noon until 4pm EST and do nothing but - yes you guessed it - CRAFT their blessed little hearts away!!!!! The church has donated an entire room for these women who volunteer their time and energy. When I asked what it was they did with the items they made I was amazed because not only do they sell some of their handmade items in upcoming bazaars as fundraisers for the church, but they also make items to donate to the local hospitals, police and fire departments, families and people in need, homeless shelters, battered women and children centers, as well as the local animal shelters. Once I heard and witnessed how much they did for the entire community I felt I had to do my part and started making some simple "peep" and butterfly magnets for them to sell at their next bazaar. Sadly I'm not a factory but the thought occurred to me today on my way home to ask everyone here at the 'Ville for some help. The girls have received 2 splendid sewing machines to add to their room as well as some scraps of fabric. They also have a small collection of craft books, some left over yarn balls, some buttons and a few other odds and ends but nothing really substantial enough to get them really rolling on making alot of any one kind of item. So I'm asking that anyone here who wishes to help me in my quest, please give me a holler and I'll give my mailing address to you. I'd like to try to give them a box of goodies at least once a month with things that will not only add to their supplies, but also to their stashes for future projects. In advance I'd like to thank you so much for your time, kindness, and giving nature. :hug:hug:hug:hug:hug:hug:hug:hug:hug
  4. Herrschners sells the paints and some pre-printed designs
  5. Thank you so much for all your help everyone. I kind of figured it was discontinued
  6. Hi Everyone! I'm looking for this yarn. I received 1 skein of it from a swap here at the 'Ville a while back. I started making some butterflies to donate to the local church bazaar when I was asked if I could make an afghan using the same yarn. The only thing I know is that it was Red Heart brand. I've looked all over and can not seem to locate it at all and believe it may have been discontinued. Any info would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks in advance! Have a Happy Easter!!!!!
  7. lol i love your idea!!! what a great way to not have to pack so much for your upcoming move! if i'm chosen i'd like door #3
  8. after blowing up the pic to get a better look, i saw the edging was done in triple crochets - all around. what was done is the following: triple in each double crochet and inbetween each double (causing the ruffle on the top and bottom edges) and 3 triple at the end of each row along the sides. the corners most likely have 4 or 5 triples in them but there wasn't a clear pic of the corners so i couldn't tell. hope that helps
